As Warnock said we would be looking at loan signings targets are Maynard, Bothroyd, DJ Campbell or possibly Sharp. Then winger could be Thorgen Hazard, Robbie Brady from or Adam Hammill from Wolves
TOM MOT

Believable7 Unbelievable30

We have no money ffs. No money for decent wages or loan fees. We'll end up with f*** all.

Agree2 Disagree0

Why does everyone assume Eden Hazard's brother is as good as he is? he's only at Chelsea as he is written in Eden's contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ahh the negetive waves where would this club be without them

Agree0 Disagree1

Good strikers but not to sure about some wingers.

Agree0 Disagree1

Eden says he's better than he is

Agree0 Disagree0

Thorgan is a decent player if not a little rough around the edges. Has glimmers of his brothers flair and will no doubt be up there one day.

Agree0 Disagree0

Billy Sharp would be a good loan though. Can see him pairing up with Becchio :)

Hearing Apparently it was vaughan warnock was interested in but another club offered more wages ! that other club are huddersfield , if we can not compete with hudderfield on wages, warnock has no chance

Believable48 Unbelievable9

We COULD compete but Bates wont let us !

Agree1 Disagree0

Wow wow wow. Forget it. If he is choosing Huddersfield over Leeds cos they are offering more money, then mentally he aint the kind of player we want at ER is he. We want players that will sweat blood for the shirt, not players that would choose others over us cos they offer more money ! On wards and upwards United forever !

Agree0 Disagree0

Peltier chose Leeds over Hudds......Wait while Rhodes leaves next week...Town will struggle....

Agree2 Disagree1

Thank god for that Vaughan is injury prone and not even that good when fit. He would not have added anything other than medical bills

Agree1 Disagree1

It's the sad truth, we cannot offer wages that other clubs can and until Bates has gone we never will. It is unrealistic to expect players to take lower wages just to join us. We can't complete with many clubs in our league and that is why our best players leave and we cannot attract even average ones. If you were offered 2 jobs you would not take the lower paid one, so why do you expect players to

Agree2 Disagree0

Leeds can't compete with Championship rivals even when a transfer fee isn't involved and thats a fact

Agree1 Disagree1

Maybe that's cos they are offering too much for hum

Agree0 Disagree0

Nothing to do with not being able to match what he was offered by town, its offering what he was worth, and who the f**k wants vaughan anyway

Agree0 Disagree0

We wanted Vaughan

Agree0 Disagree1

Massive rumour that Leeds United's second string Norwich City have sold their England U 21 International Striker James Vaughan to Huddersfield, allowing Jordan Rhodes his protracted move to Elland Road to team up with fellow Scottish International RM and the realisation that his best route to the premiership is with a bigger club from the Championship.

JR > RM

You 2 Me :)
Me 2 You :)

Believable14 Unbelievable59

Lmao not chance

Agree0 Disagree0

Grow up mate seriously.
Do u honestly think wether his fellow scot plays for us or not he'll come to leeds when Hudds been offered 6 mil for hom ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Would love this but blackburn offered him 35,000 a week and where will leeds get 6+ million for a striker and unproven striker at this level

Agree0 Disagree0

And where will the 6 million come from. LOL

Agree1 Disagree0

We cannot afford his wages let alone the transfer fee. Get real!

Agree2 Disagree0

Total BS ..but made me grin

Michael Owen spotted at TA!!!!! {Ed013's Note - What, on the SSN channel in TA Lounge area!}

Believable8 Unbelievable82

There is more chance of seeing michael palin out side Thorp Arch than there is Michael Owen !

Agree1 Disagree1

It says stoke are intrested in micheal owen and agreed a fee for maurice edu

Agree0 Disagree0

Heard it on ssn

Agree1 Disagree0

He is old, with high wages and injury prone and has already said he won't play in the championship. If you're going to make up silly rumours, then pick at least a semi-feasible player.

Agree0 Disagree0

Is he our buyer? cos he certainly won't be playing.

Agree0 Disagree0

Nonsense. He said himself he is good enough for the prem or would retire. No way is he coming to Leeds

Crmd

Agree0 Disagree0

Was he lost?

take over is off again
lust not saying any thing {Ed013's Note - Do you not think that may be down to them being told to be quiet?}

Believable19 Unbelievable43

Has it ever been on?

Agree0 Disagree1

To true Ed, its to quiet something has defo been said to them. Just hope this pen4ken jobby doesn't make him dig his heels in as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

Every day,much to my wife's
amusement, i spend time going through leeds rumours and various other sites to hopefully find some news on the takeover,only to be left just as frustrated as the rest of you.it is now clear to me that mr.bates is doing what he has done for the entire time he has owned the club and that is to bleed it dry and laugh at the loyal fans.i am certain that the failure of the takeover to go through is because of his greed and stalling tactics just to wring every last pound out the new owners.how much money does the man want?how much does he need?is it really just a big joke to him?i really do hate ths man,

Agree2 Disagree0

So because LUST have'nt said anything in the last week, you take this to mean the deal is off?

GET A GRIP OF YOURSELF!!

Agree1 Disagree0

How can you draw conclusions from them not saying anything? Does that mean that a situation whereby the takeover is completed and LUST say nothing cannot possibly exist?

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't forget last time LUST decided to show how little credibility they have they said it was off only to a few hours later say it is back on and should be done in next few days. When lust comes to mind so does a*se and elbow... they are less reliable than the rumours on here sayin it will be done by 'this' friday haha.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets use that logic for other things. LUST haven't said we aren't signing messi. So we must be getting him before the window closes.

To reply to one of the other posters. My girlfriend is continually laughing at me for always being on this site. Any time I've got my phone in my hand she always just looks at me and says "Leeds?". Lol

Crmd

Agree0 Disagree0

Lust know about as much as I do about pig farming!!

Agree0 Disagree0

rumours website..........this is all this talk of takeover/investment is...a RUMOUR. it aint happening people, warnock is not happy with what he can do,no funds for anyone,bates is just lining his own pocket AGAIN,but while the rumour carry's on,he will be loving it,more bums on seats,shirt sales ect ect!!! im worried for all us Leeds fans,we are building ourselfs up,and in reality we are not much better than we where this time last year? FACT

Believable36 Unbelievable35

Whats with all this "FACT" crap,it aint a fact till we know it is and you know FA,even NWs admitted talks are ongoing so stop posting utter sh-te.

Agree1 Disagree0

And on top of that is got a load of free pens he can recycle. M.O.T

Agree0 Disagree0

And how would you know ?
Are you the buyer ?
Are you the seller ?
No ! Well keep quiet and wait THT is all we can all do...............oh & hope !

Agree2 Disagree0

Have to agree mate I have been saying this on here for weeks, we are fuelling our own rumours about the proposed takeover from Arab princes and now anyone that turns up at ER in a suit. Most of my mates don't want us to do a Leicester anyway, with our fan base and the squad NW has built I still think well be up there at the end of the season, you've gotta be optimistic at this time of the season or there's no point

Agree0 Disagree1

Agreed, no takeover investment. Its a trick to get season ticket sales. However, Bates has steadied the ship. We could be where Portsmouth and Rangers are. He should be more supportive of NW though.

Agree0 Disagree1

So your saying lust os evening post and all the others that have spoke about it are misguided are they? And bates has been in this game for years do u really think that "talk" of a takeover will get people buying more and more shirts and more bums on seats! Surely fans will do that "when" this takeover is finally done u sound like u have as much business sense as my whippet

Agree0 Disagree0

You know absolutely jack s##t mate. You have no idea whether NW is happy or not and whether a takeover/investment is happening or not
I know people connected to the club and personal friends of Papa Smurf and they do not know anything, so unless you are related to KB or NW, keep your mind numbing thoughts to yourself
Go back to your X-Box

Agree1 Disagree0

You are full of it. FACT

See what i did there, I put the word FACT after my statement so it must be true.

I know why people are sceptical but going on all the strong rumours from various sources there is a takeover and our lovely chairman is dragging his heels for whatever reason, it'll happen at some point, keep the faith! (No I don't know anything for certain its just my opinion)

MichaelH MOT

Agree3 Disagree0

Ok take over might be off, and no one hates bates more than myself but we are in a much better position fact. nw has done well, better keepers and defence and mid and attack look ok. i hope more than anyone take over happens but think we have a chance anyway. at least we wont lose 11 home game and get smashed by 7 goals against forest...we are better fact

Agree1 Disagree0

We are a lot better than we were this time last year. We have only let in two goals in two games, having won 1 and lost 1. Last year after two games we had lost two and conceded 4 goals.

I know that doesn't mean that by the end of the season we will be in a better position, but it disproves the assertion that "in reality we are not much better than we where this time last year? FACT", which was neither a fact nor a question.

Agree1 Disagree0

What would bates have to gain by not selling yhe club?! No investment no promotion possible money problems playets sold to balance the books.Unhappy fans. Unhappy players unhappy manager. Ken likes one thing money for for ken and if he doesnt sell its going to cost him more. Unless warnock workshis magic

Agree1 Disagree0

re posting from origanal....Wake up and realise this is all a smoke screen! Nowt will happen,if you look at top of rumous page tonight someone has posted that deal has collapsed! what i said so much rubbish going on,but do you really think it takes this long? NO it dont..... FACT

Agree0 Disagree1

Original poster.......you are a mug n im ashamed 2 have ppl like you supporting leeds, negative little boy, get a grip n stop thinking your in the know, u have no facts n u obviously have no life now go n get back under your stone

Agree0 Disagree0

FACT none of us know really do we I think the conspiracy theories on here about no takeover are just a reaction to some of the utter rubbish that's been dreamt up and posted on here. It's been happening tomorrow for the last six weeks I wouldn't say the original poster was a mug or negative probably just frustrated like the rest of us. An investment or takeover will probably happen eventually but come on we are all Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

He's not a leeds fan , same as all the cretins saying no TO ,FACT , we dont need these people

Agree0 Disagree0

Ok mate your not a Leeds fan if you don't think the takeovers going to happen or you question why it hasn't happened yet. See you in a week when we're still on here debating it, ps I hope it happens tomorrow. Still a Leeds fan

Agree0 Disagree0

Rubbish, the original poster knows no more than anyone so why come on here n say FACT when u aint fooling anyone but the under 5 kids. fact is we have a better team now than we had last season n another fact is that we are playing as a team now unlike last season where snodgrass took more shots than anyone n that is a fact btw b 4 u say it aint go check. now we sold him we can now play as a team n not a 1 man greedy team.

Agree0 Disagree0

Nail on the head the original poster knows no more than anyone else including me and you do just because he's not following the populist view about the takeover does this make him a mug or a cretin? It's a rumour site most of what's on here is without evidence, mostly peoples thoughts. Read most of the above posts and whether they are agreeing with you or not they all agree we are a stronger side with or without investment. Still a Leeds fan

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol " still a leeds fan" what does that mean? we should thanking you 4 your support? lol original poster said fact when obvioulsy its not a fact. a fact is what has happend n not what someone thinks will happen!

Agree0 Disagree0

Also you can tell hes an armchair fan as he said we aint much better than last season? our defence is 10 times better n our att has always been good so by him saying that its obvious he dnt watch many games n also that he must see a good team as in us buying big named players which is unrealistic n takeover or no takeover, no big name players will drop down to the champ n if they do its cus they failed at the top! far far better team than last season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Still a Leeds fan whether you like what I say or not, read the posts we agree on everything other than you deciding who's a Leeds fan depending if they agree with your point of view or not on the takeovet. MOT that's me finished on this thread. Lets talk football

Agree0 Disagree0

I dnt care what you say tbh, i had my say which is what this site is about so jog on

Nunez and Danny Pugh in swap deal for Tempelton

Believable30 Unbelievable53

That wouldn't even get half of Templeton. You'd have to throw in at least 750k as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why are we chasing templeton? Novikovas is where its at, brilliant player.

Agree0 Disagree0

There is no chance, Pugh and Nunez are crap and there has not been a sniff of interest all summer we are probaly just paying them off and been done with it.

Agree1 Disagree0

How about adding rachubka as well?

Agree0 Disagree0

Nunez haters get real, he needs more a chance, does great in reserve games! International player and his country hero!

Pugh though needs cobbling to save another club from him. Played without any heart.

Don't want templeton.

Agree0 Disagree0

I do agree with the poster before that saying Nunez needs more chances.

I feel that with the current defencive team Nunez would have the opportunity to play his natural attacking central midfielder role.

LUFC-Bob

Agree1 Disagree0

I agree with Novikovas, add Jonny Russell as well and it could make a massive difference. Not too bothered about Templeton.

Agree0 Disagree0

Get real hearts could not afford wages

Agree0 Disagree0

Templeton and Quinn ....get them and we go up don't get them and we won't

Agree0 Disagree1

We dont have the funds to buy Templeton and Pugh and Nunez aren't worth anything

Agree0 Disagree1

Looks like no new signings Nw has just said on Yorkshire radio he said he's waiting till final 25 teams are named in September and will look to l

Believable38 Unbelievable2

Thats if they will even come to leeds , well probably end up with the crap of the crap who carnt be arsed and are sulking as they have been left out of the prem squad.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2012 07:52:46
Hearing that Warnock is considering a non-contract deal for Robbie Fowler, it'll only be short-term to January to boost squad numbers.

Believable11 Unbelievable90

Don't think he's got the pace and stamina for top championship games. Probably still got a right stinger of a toe on him though. Might do a job. He won't be cheap though. -DB

Agree0 Disagree1

He is a mercenary who shafted us 10 years ago.

Agree0 Disagree1

We are probibly still paying his wages anyway!

Agree1 Disagree0

We're probably still paying his wages

Agree0 Disagree0

We'll have to pay out a lot for wages, boiled sweets, slippers and zimmer frames...

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha ha !! Are you the same guy who said Kewell is on his way back to Leeds ? This one is almost as bad.

Agree0 Disagree0

He's 37, most recently been plying his trade in Thailand (where he managed to score 2 goals in 13 - impressive !) and earlier this year turned down Blackpool's offer of 100 per week !

Agree0 Disagree0

His trade is now a football pundit

Agree0 Disagree0

...rather have arthur fowler

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh dear! Let's face it, he was already past his best when he signed for us eleven years ago! One of the biggest disappointments of all time in a Leeds shirt -prune one from, I reckon, Fowler, Lee Sharpe, Brolin and Seth Johnson for the worst value signing, pound for pound, in our history. Chapel A

Agree2 Disagree0

He didn't shaft us. He just worked hard for the team. How did you come to that conclusion?

Agree1 Disagree0

He owes about ten seasons pay for free. He was past it 11 years ago so why bother now.

Agree0 Disagree0

To the guy above who's got Fowler in his worst players list, I'll have what your drinking. It's ridiculous to suggest he was poor for us, he got a goal every other game (about the same ratio as for Liverpool).

Anyone who saw his goals and performance for us vs West Ham will agree he was quality. Badly underused by oleary (as was Keane btw).

Macca72

NW mentions George Boyd in interview previewing tomorrow's game with Posh. Source O/S. Maybe we should chant Boyd's name during match and tell him to come to Leeds Leeds Leeds.

Believable31 Unbelievable15

And are you going to pay for him ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Seems funny that we are interested in him now it was only last year that we were all calling him a gypo

Agree0 Disagree0

But if we did buy him he'd be "our" gypo!

Agree0 Disagree0

Good call. The new 'Jesus?' Double deal for Boyd and Taylor would be a cracker. Chapel A

Never mind the fact we have no money in the transfer kitty. Let's take a look at the free transfer market. ivan klasnic, james mcfadden and akos buzsaky all players that could bring something to the squad and most importantly they are free. worth looking at...

Believable71 Unbelievable5

Agreed. However their wage demands might be too much for us at the moment (with bates being the financier)

Agree1 Disagree0

I think what warnock means is that it's not just the fees it's the wages too that he has no budget for mate, plus freebies command a signing on fee and they can b as expensive as a transfer fee from some greedy sods. That's y like he said it'll b loans all the way if takeover doesn't happen in time

Agree1 Disagree0

The money to pay wages and signing on fees still has to come from somewhere. A signing on fee for some of these players could be the same as some of the transfer fees we have payed this season so as much as I would like to see players of this class at ER, I think unless the takeover/investment happens before the window closes then NW is looking at the loan market for the players we need.

Agree1 Disagree0

Matey, they are not 'free'! one reason they run their contract down is so they can trouser a signing on fee in lieu of the transfer fee that would otherwise go to their club. In addition the parasitic agents grab a bloody wedge themselves. it is not uncommon for a 'free' player's agent to want a bung just to start the conversation! Murky world matey trust me. TeeCee

Agree1 Disagree1

The closer to the transfer deadline the prices will drop

Agree0 Disagree0

Klasnic and buszacky would be v welcome, not the other fella though

Agree0 Disagree0
